Akira 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack
Akira isn't just a movie – it's the genesis of a genre. Katsuhiro Otomo's landmark cyberpunk classic obliterated the boundaries of feature-length animation and forced the world to look into the future. Akira's arrival shattered traditional thinking, creating space for movies like The Matrix to be dreamed into brutal reality. Without Kaneda and Tetsuo, without espers and psionic assassins, without that iconic motorcycle – our world would be a far less exciting place to exist. But the graphic novel became the movie and the movie became a phenomenon and the world took notice. Now, Akira is everywhere. If you can't see it in the streets – if you can't feel it crawling around inside your brain – then you have yet to be initiated. What are you waiting for?
